A federal judge has indicated she is leaning toward dismissing most of an Iraq war veteran’s lawsuit against the makers of “The Hurt Locker” but may allow him to pursue his key claim that the Oscar-winning film is based on his life.
The producers, director and screenwriter of the movie had been seeking an outright dismissal of Sgt. Jeffrey Sarver’s lawsuit, but U.S. District Judge Jacqueline Nguyen indicated in a tentative ruling that she may allow him to pursue a misappropriation of name and likeness claim. Her draft ruling indicated that she plans to dismiss Sarver’s claims of defamation, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
